Sunny Leone says yesteryear stars like Madhubala, Rekha, Sharmila Tagore and Dimple Kapadia gave her the confidence and taught her to not make any changes in her personality.
Sunny tweeted a few throwback photographs of the veteran actresses as well as of Mandakini, Rekha and Zeenat Aman and credited them as her idols. “A few women in Bollywood who have taught me that it’s perfectly okay to be myself. Sharmila Tagore, Mandakini, Dimple Kapadia, Rekha, Zeenat Aman and Madhubala,” Sunny captioned the images.

Sunny, known for playing bold roles in films, started her career in Bollywood with the 2012 film Jism 2. She went on to appear in films like Ragini MMS 2, Hate Story 2 and Baadshaho.
Despite being one of the most sought-after stars in India, Sunny continues to remain a controversial person. She was supposed to perform in Bengaluru at New Years but her event was cancelled after protesters threatened to commit mass suicide.
